A key for intelligence officers and the mili tary to detecting and acting on threats worldwide is the ability to access information in a timely manner. The recent selection by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) of Lockheed Martin, as one of eight companies to offer worldwide analytic support across a variety of intelligence areas, will provide those intelligence personnel with the information they need, when they need it.

The new indefinite-delivery-indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract, Solutions for Intelligence II (SIA II) from the Virginia Contracting Activity in support of DIA, has an estimated cost ceiling of $5.6 billion and a period of performance of two base years and three one-year options.

"Lockheed Martin is proud to continue our s upport to the DIA Intelligence Analysis mission, providing timely, objective and cogent intelligence to warfighters, defense planners and national security policy makers, resulting in a distinct decision advantage," said Bob Kramer, Lockheed Martin IS and GS-Defense vice president for Operational Systems and Services.

Through the contract's task orders, Lockheed Martin will provide worldwide analytic support across 29 specialized intelligence categories which are critical to satisfying DIA's mission requirements including: Computer Network Operations, Foreign Intel Activities, Foreign Space and Counterspace, Terrorism, WMD, Foreign Denial and Deception, and Illicit Drugs.

"Our expertise truly lies in developing the innovative intelligence, counterintelligence and information-sharing solutions that have supported the DIA mission in the past and kept our soldiers and country informed," said Kramer.

The Defense Intelligence Agency is a Department of Defense combat support agency and an important member of the United States Intelligence Community. With more than 16,500 military and civilian employees worldwide, DIA is a major producer and manager of foreign military intelligence.

DIA provides military intelligence to warfighters, defense policymakers and force planners, in the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community, in support of U.S. military planning and operations and weapon systems acquisition.
